No. dont buy any of the cards that look like that. they are cheap Chinese knockoffs. i buy and sell parts on ebay often. there are many nvidia knockoffs and they all look like something like that. if it seams to good to be true then it most likely is.

i'd say that they just don't know what they've got. GK107 is the GTX650 - http://www.anandtech.com/show/6289/nvidia-launches-gefo...


GK107 is also used in the new Geforce GT 740. If anything, this looks like a GT 740 with DDR3 memory, but there is some misinformation about the memory clocks - 4500 MHz is impossible with DDR3. And the 80 GB/s memory bandwidth is from the GDDR5 version, the DDR3 version has FAR less memory bandwidth.

but lets say if i were to buy it will it work just like a normal gtx 650 card or will it just not work propertly? they were selling this card before for about 100 dollars i believe.

Image from a 6850 along with it's memory bus combined with the 650? Sounds like a great deal! Don't do it!

Don't see any image of a 6850. But you're right about the bus, a 256-bit bus makes no sense for a GK107 card. It's 128-bit regardless of whether the GK107 is in a GT 640, GTX 650, or GT 740, and whether it's using DDR3 or GDDR5.
